anybody participate in politics? why would we come to washington? some of these people -- this obama guy has tons of influence. so we all have influence. you can think about that, we all have an equal influence, and the court rejected that idea. increasingly, because the court has rejected the quality rationale, or form arguments which are primarily in my view at least at the academic level based on equality, themselves or disguise themselves in the corruption argument, and as a result they further confuse. they talk about it being corrective -- corruptive. when you look at that actual legislation were ideas get ground into legislation, often times equality all has something to do with it. we have to stand by your ad provision. brad smith and i approve this message because you idiots could not figure out that the campaign was approved by me. that is how i would do my disclaimer if i were running. why was that there? the congressional effect -- record is very clear. they thought it would reduce the attack ads on them, reduce negative adds, and you saw a lot feingold n the mccain- amendmen
